SPANAKOPITA RECIPE

Pasture raised cattle are known to be packed full of higher amounts of vitamin B, A & E and antioxidants compared to grain fed beef. It is also known to contain lower levels of saturated fat than traditionally grain fed cattle.

Carrots

A mixture of dragon or mokum carrots. Loaded with beta-carotene and vitamin a, farm fresh carrots are deliciously earthy and sweet.

Carrot tops should be cut off and stored separately in the fridge from the roots of the carrot. Wrap in a paper towel and place carrots into an airtight container in your fridge. Wrap the greens in a towel and place in your crisper drawer.

Try using the greens! The greens have a taste similar to parsley, but are more earthy. Use stalks/leaves to flavor stocks or use the leaves in this chimichurri recipe. Make sure you wash and clean the greens before using. 

Noodle Bean AKA Yard Long Bean

Often mistaken for a hull pea, noodle beans do not to be shelled for their peas. They are eaten for their stringless pods, and taste more like asparagus than a bean or pea. They are full of nutrition and keep most of their color when cooked.

Best stored in a ziptop, sealable bag.

Parcook in boiling salt water for 3 minutes. Remove from water and stir fry them with oil, and minced garlic for about 2 minutes. Finish with a splash of soy sauce and lime juice. Finish wtih sesame seeds.

Fennel

A bulbing vegetable that can be cooked in as many recipes and is as versatile as a carrot. Fennel has a mild anise or licorice flavor. The bulb can be eaten raw or cooked, when roasted fennel becomes very sweet. Bulb can be sliced, diced, cut into wedges. Roasted, used in soups or eaten raw thinly sliced in salads with bitter greens. Fennel fronds look like dill, they are a delicate garnish and can be treated as a fresh herb. Cut tough stalks away from root and fronds ( they can be used in soups) and store all three pieces separately in sealed containers in the fridge.
